Grilled marinated chicken breasts served with spiced yogurt, pitta bread and french fries or couscous. A fantastic chicken recipe that is simple and easy to make. The chicken can be marinated a day ahead.
Preparation time: 120 minutes, Cooking time: 15 minutes, Serves: 4 - 6 


1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts

For the chicken marinade
2 Tbsp rice wine vinegar
4 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 Tbsp onion powder
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp black pepper
Salt to taste

Wooden skewers

For the spiced yogurt dip
1 1/2 cups yogurt
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 clove garlic, minced
Salt to taste
2 Tbsp olive oil


Marinade the chicken
Cut chicken into long, thin stripes (3/4 inch thick), then cut each stripe into 1 inch pieces.

In a bowl add all the marinade ingredients and stir until well blended.

Add the chicken and marinade into a plastic freezer bag and stir well to coat the chicken well. Remove as much air from the bag as possible and seal the bag, then 'massage' the chicken so that it gets completely covered in the marinade. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours (you can do this the day before).

Make the spiced yogurt
Add the yogurt and remaining ingredients (spices, garlic and olive oil) in a bowl and stir well. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to use.

Cook the chicken
Soak skewers in water for 15 minutes.

When the chicken has marinaded, thread it on the wooden skewers (thread 5 to 6 chicken pieces on each skewer).

Cook the chicken on grill grates for 10 to 15 minutes or until cooked in the middle.

Serve chicken with the spiced yogurt, pitta bread and couscous or french fries.
